Text at Kilmainham Gaol

Above one stone doorway is an inscription scratched by a former prisoner: “Beware the Risen People who have Harried and Held, Ye that have Bullied and Bribed.” Those words were penned by Padraig Pearse, one of the authors of the Irish Proclamation of Freedom announced on April 24, 1916. Their armed resistance in Dublin ultimately led to the creation of the modern Irish state. (Yes, some actual real interesting information for ya!)

John Connell’s place of execution at Kilmainham Gaol.

This is the place where James Connolly was executed. James Connolly was an Irish republican and socialist leader. He was born in the Cowgate area of Edinburgh, Scotland, to Irish immigrant parents and spoke with a Scottish accent throughout his life. He left school for working life at the age of 11, but became one of the leading Marxist theorists of his day. He also took a role in Scottish and American politics. He was executed by a British firing squad because of his leadership role in the Easter Rising of 1916.
(ALL THIS STUFF I’M TEACHING YOU, CAN YOU FEEL YOUR BRAIN GROWING?!)

East Wing or VIctoria Wing at Kilmainham Gaol

Hi, I’m the East wing of Kilmainham Gaol. You might remember me from such movies as: The Italian Job, In The Name Of The Father and The Escapist. (Or from the famous music video of U2 where Bono is all ready to go horseback riding, spent ages on his outfit but can’t find his horse anywhere and for some reason is hoping to find it inside the jail looking around all panicky and The Edge also seems very upset but then Bono eventually realizes he’s being silly and goes outside where he actually finds his horse and he and his mates have a lovely day out destroying buildings and putting them on fire.)
